Self-reports after whiplash often indicate associations with vertigo and reading problems. Neuropsychological and otoneurological tests were applied to a group of whiplash patients (n = 26) and to a carefully matched control group. The whiplash group deviated from the control group on measures of eye movements during reading, on smooth pursuit eye movements… (More)
Autonomic functions have been studied in seven patients with chronic paroxysmal hemicrania (CPH). A test battery comprising tearing, salivation and nasal secretion was employed. Under basal conditions these parameters did not differ significantly from those in a control group. After stimulation with pilocarpine the patients responded rather inhomogeneously.… (More)
ABR amplitude behaviour to condensation (C) and rarefaction (R) clicks was investigated in normal ears, ears affected by Ménière's disease and ears with high-frequency hearing loss (HF ears). The wave IV-V amplitude-intensity function was steeper in ABRs evoked by R than by C clicks. This may suggest that two different cochlear generator components, one… (More)
Quantitated neurophysiology and topographic brain mapping are reviewed. Certain information on the electrical activity of the brain may be more easily comprehended with the aid of topographic visualization of EEG and evoked potentials. Quantitated neurophysiology promises to make an important contribution to research in several fields of neuroscience, e.g.… (More)
The unilateral headache in patients with cluster headache syndrome is associated with a number of autonomic accompanying phenomena. Investigation of sweating of the forehead, salivation, nasal secretion and tearing is described and sympathetic parasympathetic firing in connection with headache attacks is discussed.
Tyramine pupillometry was performed in 27 cluster headache patients and in 45 healthy controls. Asymmetry variables, i.e. symptomatic(S)-nonsymptomatic(NS) side diameter difference and the ratios (S/NS, log NS/S or S/S+NS) displayed higher sensitivities than variables which express the function of the symptomatic and the nonsymptomatic side pupil… (More)
